Renamed a number of commonly-used but confusing device tags. The plan
is to move away from generic names like "main" to names that capture
the device type as well. This will allow searches for devices to be
based on tags alone. Added validity checks to prevent the continuance
of this pattern (which I started :), and to ensure that all devices
have unique tags, regardless of type. [Aaron Giles]
CPU/"main" -> "maincpu"
CPU/"audio" -> "audiocpu"
CPU/"sound" -> "soundcpu"
SCREEN/main -> "screen" (since it's the only one)
SPEAKER/"left" -> "lspeaker"
SPEAKER/"right" -> "rspeaker"
SCREEN/"left" -> "lscreen"
SCREEN/"right" -> "rscreen"
SCREEN/"middle" -> "mscreen"
SCREEN/"center" -> "cscreen"

Hooked up the reel background colour writes to cherry master / new
fruit bonus '96 etc. [David Haywood]
Fixed rom loading in secretab. [Angelo Salese]
Added BellFruit Scorpion 1, Bellfruit System 85, Maygay M1B and
Maygay M2 systems from AGEMAME. MPU4 Mechanical improvements have been
made, making mpu4.c the mechanical driver, and mpu4drvr the non-
mechanical one. This only leaves JPM impact (mechanical skeleton),
Maygay M2 and MPU3 (mechanical skeleton) to be ported from the
AGEMAME codebase. There's also been a cleanup sweep on Scorpion2, we
were declaring too many versions of the same function, and the reel
drawing code had stopped working. Both of these are now fixed.
